The Miami Dolphins have re-signed wide receiver Kenny Stills to a 4-year, $32 million deal that includes $20 million guaranteed, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Stills was vital part to the Dolphins passing game in 2016, working mainly as a deep threat recording 42 catches, 726 yards and 9 TDs on 17.3 ypc. All the talk the last couple weeks about Stills commanding $12 million a year was hogwash.
Dolphins set to talk with Kenny Stills this week-- Mon Feb 27 8:15 am --
Free agent WR to command $12 million per year?
According to sources familiar with the situation, the Dolphins this week hope to make a strong pitch to the wide receiverís (Kenny Stills) representation in hopes of getting feedback that will suggest Stills will be re-signing with the team. The Stills camp is already aware of the receiverís potential value in free agency. And the market is said to already be in the $12-million-a-year range, per sources.
FF Today's Take:If the $12 million per year leak (likely by Stills' agent) is true, then its likely the Dolphins would let him walk. Stills led the Dolphins with 9 TDs last season and was mainly used as a deep threat (42 catches, 726 yds). With DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry under control it would make sense for the Dolphins to spend their money plugging other position holes.
